I did not have enough time to do this museum justice. The exhibits need time for contemplation. It was really cool to see artwork by many well known artists. Having already being through many of the museums on the mall I was a little overloaded....More

We stayed about 10 minutes - it took longer to pass the security check. Massive building, lots of empty space - I'm sure some find it interesting - but just not for me.

We were primarily interested in Renaissance Art and the French Impressionist Movement. The gallery has plenty of paintings in both genres with easy access following the maps.

There are few places in the world, and even fewer in the United States, where one can see works by so many great masters, including Da Vinci, Cezanne, Monet, Vermeer, Rodin, Degas, Titian and Rembrandt, in beautiful galleries FOR FREE. The National Gallery’s seemingly endless...More

The French Impressionist paintings at the National Gallery are truly world class. I especially like the Renoir collection.
